There is nothing better than spending an entire afternoon of your well-earned weekend quaffing bubbles with friends. Day drinking is seriously underrated – it’s almost always accompanied by fancy food, you get to wear your fancy chinos/cute wrap dress, and at the end you can just flop into bed and get a full night’s sleep, waking refreshed the next day.

Jamie’s Italian are all over it this month when it comes to day drinking. They’re offering up a bottomless prosecco long lunch for all of September, and at a price that won’t break your bank.

IN SYDNEY // Thomas Godfrey’s Wild Game Ragu of New South Wales wild boar, slow cooked overnight in red wine and herbs and added to fresh rigatoni. IN BRISBANE // Vianna Standen is making the most of warm Queensland winters and an iconic local ingredient with Moreton Bay bug tossed with white wine, chilli and fresh tagliatelle. IN PERTH // Lukasz Krawieczek is bringing the flavour with a free-range Mount Barker Pork Belly – cooked to crisp perfection in the pizza oven before being shredded over a hand-stretched pizza. IN ADELAIDE // Suzan Marsden has taken a @jamiesitalianau favourite to the next level, creating the Barossa Valley Bolognese served on flat pappardelle. #jamiesitalianau

Each Saturday for $50 you’ll score all the prosecco you want for the hours of 12pm – 4pm, along with a main sized pasta and dessert. That’s a pretty sweet deal. And as we all know, you’ve gotta team your day drinks with some proper food, or else you end up being that person who cries about their ex in the gutter at the uncouth time of 5pm.

Pasta-wise, you can choose any from the menu – you’re not limited to bolognese, which is nice. There’s also nibbles to share included in the $50/head price, and yes – the famous crispy polenta chips are one of said nibbles.

The promotion is running from 8th September to 7th October, so you’ll need to co-ordinate the group chat real quick if you want in. Jamie’s Italian has restaurants in Sydney, Perth, Brissie and Adelaidehit up their site here to book.
